Third time is not a charm
Robert E., Newegg
28 January 2014
Summary: I was very surprised with EVGA. I thought they would have a better product than this. Remember after 30 days you have to go to the manufacturer for any help. The RMA takes a Looooooooooong time and once Newegg gas your $$$, forget about any help from them.
Pros: It fit in my case, yes that's it.
Cons: Third time is not a charm. I had this replaced three times and EVGA had to give me an upgrade because I kept getting driver crashes. I replaced the drivers about six + times including different versions and betas, I upgraded my power supply, and all to no avail.
Summary: Have bought many EVGA cards over the years and have never had a problem until this card. I bought it in November of 2011 but just recently put my newer system together. Video cards should last longer than 4 months
Pros: Worked well for about 4 months
Cons: booted up computer last Sunday and blue screen came up saying no connected found from the sounds I new that Windows had booted up correctly; checked all connections still nothing; replaced DVI cable from my other desktop still nothing; removed card and replaced it with my video card from the othe...
Summary: I'm not sure if it is due to overheating, but it freezes the entire computer. It might be the Nvidia's fault for bad drivers. Good thing I have a lifetime warranty, which I don't think is any good if they replace it with the same model.
Summary: I miss BFG. Through all the hassle my sturdy ol' 8800 GTS served as a loyal backup, and still lives; that's more than I can say for three of these bad boys.
Pros: Decent card, when it works.
Cons: 1 out of the four cards I received in the last couple years of ownership were duds. Still can't figure out the incompatibility (not for a lack of trying) so instead of paying for RMA shipping a third time I am replacing this outdated card for a Gigabyte 650 Ti. I have been a system builder for 10...
Summary: I really liked this card, it was the first video card I ever had and the experience of building a PC was great. But it sourly disappointed me with it's constant failure and has caused me to lose online matches, even got banned for leaving two games in a row due to it crashing and needing a reboot.
Pros: The card can run just about anything I've tried on it on max, and Skyrim on high.
Cons: It's been shutting on and off ever since installation. I was going to return it, but it stopped doing it for three months back in August until it started doing it again in December. Now it's doing it every day, this week it's done it more than 5 times. Shuts off like the power when out, but the o...
Summary: Keep in mind that both EVGA and ASUS have performance spps that test your computer for SLI compatibility. My computer passed both these tests before I jumped onto the SLI bandwagon.
Pros: EVGA did RMA me two GTX 260's for me and sent back two GTX 460's, which was nice of them.
Cons: NO SLI -- computer freezes and will not boot up. EVGA first had me replace the bridge ($15.00). Then they had me replace the power supply ($240.00). Then EVGA asked me to RMA the ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard, which came back certified to run SLI. Now EVGA wants me to RMA the motherboard again b...
Cons: As soon as I install the drivers whenever I bootup windows freezes at the welcome screen and gets BSOD error 116. I've tried all different versions of the drivers (From the disc, nvidia site, windows update) and none of those work. I can boot in safe mode fine but I cannot get anything other than...
Cons: Poured over tons of forums regarding this issue, but still no progress. It's probably a memory conflict due to the memok check light. Best answers online said to change motherboard (people with M4A87TD EVO) or change video card. I'm RMAing for a different video card.
